INet Drone

Drone without water crop

In late 2015, INet applied for exemption to Section 333 of the FFA Reform Act in the railcar inspection and inventory market space and began testing a new drone AEI reader, the INet Rail Automation Drone (IRAD-1), which will change the face of railyard automation once again. It's a bold plan that requires safety testing and FAA approvals, but will give rail shippers a greater amount of flexibility in their railyards. The IRAD-1 will be capable of fully autonomous scanning of the railyard for inventory and inspection of a railcar. Built into the drone is an elaborate collision detection and avoidance system to help avoid objects in the flight path and reinforce safety. This tool gives the IRAD-1 the ability to be a completely autonomous AEI scanner. This will lead to faster data collection and help the business reduce workforce requirements.
